GCRO 2016/2017 Annual Report
This Annual Report covers the 2016/17 financial year, the second full year in the GCRO's current five year strategic plan - approved in late 2014 - for the period 2015/16 to 2019/20. This was a year of much growth for the GCRO, as a host of new researchers hired at the end of 2015 began to find their feet, and as we occupied new and expanded office space on the 6th floor of Wits' University Corner in March 2017. Results from the fourth Quality of Life survey for 2015/16, now with 30 000 respondents, were launched in June 2016, and important new programmes of research, including a 'city-region economies' thrust, and within this a pilot firm survey, got underway.
